SEAI Home Charger Grants

The grant is available when you purchase either a NEW or SECOND HAND electric vehicle (EV).

Applicant Requirements

  • Any private owner who buys an eligible EV in 2018 or later is eligible to apply for this grant.
  • The EV must be parked at an off-street parking location associated with their home and the charger must be connected back to the fuse board/consumer unit of the applicant's home.
  • The Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN), found on your electricity bill, will be used to confirm the location of your home.
  • The property can not be associated with a previous EV vehicle grant and charge point offer. For example, it can not have availed of the free ESB Ecars home charger pre 2018.
  • You should not commence any work prior to the start date on your 'Letter of Offer', otherwise you will not receive grant support for this work.
  • On the day of install, our electrician will issue a Safe Ireland/RECI cert and complete the SEAI 'Payment Request Form' upon completion of install.  Both of these documents should be submitted to SEAI for the grant to be paid.
